Hi I'm Lynn

I grew up in Canada. I love being a wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of two young children. I previously worked in the insurance and medical industry prior to having children and am now getting ready to return to work full-time. I was raised Catholic. I am shy and quiet. I do enjoy attending baseball games and watching college football with my husband and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a member of His church has brought peace to my life. I grew up under difficult circumstances and was a person who always wondered about what the purpose of life is. I grew up Catholic but during my teenage years stopped going to church. In my late 20's early 30's I began to have a longing for something that I couldn't explain. I went back to the Catholic church but still found that something was missing. It was after I met someone who was a Mormon that I asked what does it mean to be a Mormon? That's when he taught me about the plan of salvation instantly I knew it was true. I experienced such joy in that moment because I knew I had finally found what I was longing for. I read the Book of Mormon and then prayed to my Heavenly Father to know if it was true. It took much heartfelt prayer but I received a witness that this book was indeed true. The joy and happiness that I felt in that instant were almost too much for my mortal body to comprehend, I knew it was divine. Much like the prophet Joseph Smith I knew it was true and I knew God knew I knew it was true therefore I could not deny it. I love this church, His church, and know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me. I know that there is a purpose to my life and ultimately I will return to live with my Savior Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father one day if I will but repent and be obedient to His commandments.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I don't drink alcohol, do drugs or smoke. I pray at least twice daily and read my scriptures every day. I go to church every Sunday to partake of the Sacrament and renew my baptismal covenants. We have family home evening every week in our home with our children where we teach them about the Gospel and what is expected of us as His children. Every other week I teach 9 year old girls different skills or we participate in different service projects. I am a Visiting Teacher. This means I go to certain women's homes every month and share a message of love, gratitude, strength, faith, charity, hope or any number of other righteous desires. I also assist the ward by conveying different messages or announcements to the ward members that are requested of me. I also try to have a constant prayer in my heart. I try to help others. I try to refrain from making judgements and thinking negative thoughts. I know that I am responsible to ensure that my children are raised to have their own relationship with our Savior and to teach them those good things. I don't always do the right thing but I am quick to ask for forgiveness and try to be better from that point on. I know that if do my best, always repent and am obedient to His commandments that we have been given then all will be well. I fear the Lord and know His judgements are just. I know that this church is true and that our Savior is at the head of it. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another witness that Jesus is the Christ and in its pages contains the fullness of the Gospel with all its plain and precious truths. I know that a person can get nearest to God by abiding by its precepts than any other book. I know the Bible is true as far as it is translated correctly. I am a Christian.
